Angew.Chem.: Photosynthetic proteins can convert light energy into other forms of energy. Researchers want to make this technology usable for the industrial production of fuels, for example.
Angew. Chem.: Analyzing nanoparticles individually is a challenge precisely because they are so small. A new technique using electron microscopy and a robotic arm could make the process much easier.
PNAS: An international research team has investigated water molecules in a tiny cage – and discovered previously unknown properties.
Nat. Comm.: Luminous carbon nanotubes detect pathogens – and are quick and easy to use.
Angew. Chem.: Nowadays, it is easy to determine an average pH for larger quantities of liquid. It is a challenge, however, to define a local pH value
Angew.Chem.: RESOLV collaboration shines light on a jammed topic.
PNAS: A small but important step towards a successful immune reaction is performed by an impressive nanomachine. Researchers use simulations to understand how it works.
Angew.Chem.: Bacterial enzymes are often powerful but also very sensitive catalysts. To call up their performance, they therefore need a special environment.
Angew.Chem.: Efficient catalysts are crucial for energy conversion. However, findings from basic research rarely make it into practice at present.
PNAS: In hydrogenase enzymes, the transports of protons and electrons have been considered to be separate events until now. However, coupling is the key to success here.
